I'm pleased to announce ErlyBird 0.12.0, an Erlang IDE based on NetBeans.

This is a bug-fix, performance improvement release. This release will
only provide all-in-one IDE package, which is in size of 15.9M.

Java JRE 5.0+ is requested.

To download, please go to:

To install:

   1. Unzip erlybird-bin-0.12.0-ide.zip to somewhere. For Windows
user, execute 'bin/erlybird.exe'. For *nix user, 'bin/erlybird'.
   2. Check/set your OTP path. From [Tools]->[Options], click on
'Miscellanous', then expand 'Erlang Installation', fill in the full
path of your 'erl.exe' or 'erl' file. For instance:
   3. The default -Xmx option for jvm is set to 256M, if you want to
increase it, please open the config file that is located at
etc/erlybird.conf, set -J-Xmx of 'default_options'.

When you run ErlyBird first time, the OTP libs will be indexed. The
indexing time varies from 30 to 60 minutes deponding on your computer.
